    battery life and playing music...

    Advertisement



    I'm trying to decide whether I should get a microSD card for my curve because I have the opportunity to listen to music at work but I'm wondering if the curve battery will make it through 8 hours or if I should just keep using my iPod.. Thanks

    Yeah. I was afraid of that. It sure would be nice to have one thing in my pocket. Oh well. Thanks

    I beg to differ, I listened to my curve on a flight from nyc to la, total 8 hours pretty much nonstop, high volume. Ended up with 40% battery left. Did this both ways of a round-trip flight. For me the convenience of the curve is having a single device for all my needs

    I too listen to my curve for hours at a time and I've not had trouble with the battery running down.

    Surprisingly, the playing music with my curve does not seem to drain the battery at all. Also, try setting the brightness to 10, backlight time out to 30 sec or less, and muting the trackball.

    I listened to music while working for about 3 1/2 or so hours (I was allowed for the record, lol) and battery life was still great. I made several phone calls, texted a bit and used the browser along with it. I started using it at 8 AM and by 11 PM I had about 30% left.

    I leave bluetooth wifi and network on, music, hundreds of text/email, and music. all day every day, and i go from 100-25ish% battery life over 6am to 11:30 PM. blacklight at 100 with a 30sec time out and the trackball muted.

    battery life is suprisingly long for this device.

    Re: battery life and playing music...

    Took a recent trip home to Hawaii from Portland, OR... I watched two episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (approx. 45 minutes each), and listened to mp3's during the 5hr 44min. flight across the Pacific. When we touched down in Honolulu, my Curve's battery strength was still around 30%.

    I think the Curve uses a larger capacity battery (1100mah?) than the 8100 Pearl, because I *definitely* noticed a big difference in how long each lasted. Under the same circumstances, my Pearl's battery would've been drained before reaching Hawaii (as it did last year during a trip home).

    I listen to music all day long at work and my battery holds up fine. I have a siedio battery comin in the mail soon to last even longer. But my normal battery goes all day with music playing and has plenty of battery left. I even keep it playin at night to sleep to, with no probs.
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, some1 said 2 thmslvs "U knw, I really want 2 set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close engh to get the job done".
